What not to do when bored. RC10

Post by Dir_wolf »

So, on layoff with nothing better to do, I... opened the box.
Sorry about the size of the pictures.

Half complete, and resting back in the box. :P

I am going to build it, just not sure what to do with it after that. Right now I am working on it, trying not to scratch anything, or trim anything too much.
I was thinking about measuring a few of the nylon items and making aluminum parts for my runner.

Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

That it is. :D It slipped back out of the bag, but will soon be mounted.

That buggy looks fantastic but I question your sanity. Did you start off with a new in the box kit? Kinda like taking $300 and throwing it in the trash because that's how much you just devalued your buggy.

I say go for it! Much more fun looking at a new built car than just pictures on a sealed box. I feel the same about people who have rare 1:1 cars with only 20 miles on them. whats the point if you cant enjoy them or at least touch them.

My thoughts on a NIB kit is that sure it's nice to build a kit but I thinks its better to preserve it NIB as a reference. there are plenty of new built examples that can tickle your fancy but very few NIB kits

This is a NIB kit, yes. A few years ago, I purchased 2 6012 kits and an RC12LW kit.

The 12LW has been built, and now this RC10. Both are going to be static displays.
That leaves just the one 6012 kit left. :D

I'm sure there's enough 'reference' kits out there, Shodog.....

Build looks great, Dir_wolf...... and will look very nice on display. Course, would look nice covered in mud and dirt too, but from a different perspective..... and that's what you have runners for, I imagine....
